Proposed in 2019
We are excited to announce plans for a new PATC chapter to provide expanded activities and service opportunities to PATC members in the Blue Ridge and northern Shenandoah Valley areas.
The Blue Ridge Chapter would include an area encompassing Harpers Ferry, WV and Round Hill, Purcellville, Bluemont, Berryville, White Post, Winchester, Shawneeland, Boyce, Paris, Delaplane, and Front Royal.
The Blue Ridge Chapter would conduct hikes, maintain trails, hold events, and support PATC, AT Communities and other organizations with events and projects. Membership in the new chapter would be open to all PATC members in this region.
We share the PATC vision to provide "a dynamic outdoor experience for a diverse community of trail users" and to create "opportunities for all people to contribute to sustaining the outdoor environment through volunteer engagement and nature appreciation."
